Yellow pages telephone directory has most of them. Otherwise a short list includes:

WAR Audio for Focal, Accuton, Cabasse, Axon/Aen capacitors/resistors, custom inductors, Raven tweeters, PHL, Black hole damping, various accessories etc.

Jaycar for capacitors, inductors, drivers, resistors, terminal jacks etc.

Altronics similar to Jcar;

RS Components same;

Audio Synergy has some things;

Dick Smiths same;

Hardware stores for plumbing ports, MDF, screws;

Sign writing shops for MDF computor routing services;

Engineering acoustic suppliers for egg crate foam stuffing and damping;

Furniture upholstery shops for dacron stuffing, floor vinyl or rubber supply shops for wall damping;

Building site rubbish dumpsters for free plumbing ports, TV coaxial cable, MDF scraps, screws, fibreglass stuffing, glue tubes, paint, food scraps, sandwiches, beer (if ya lucky!), jokes, well used underpants, newspapers and magazines.

Here is a national link list:

I travel to the States a lot so I bring back stuff with me. For smaller stuff Madisound has very good shipping rates.

WES components for for non-inductive wire 10w resistors.

P17s used to be about A$72. Jaycar has them for around 30% more than MASS. Check if they have any old stock for sale.

Steve

Nice site and speakers. BTW, are you in Perth ?

Default The Correct Term Is Recycling....

No, a friend found them in his street, brought them around, and said "do you want these ?."
I said thankyou very gracefully.
After minor repairs, that's several thousand dollars worth.
